1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency Elite 4dr Sedan


We've had two '95 versions of this car--
both lost to accidents where we were
prtected like being in a tank. Loved
these cars enough to go looking for '96
models; we now have two '96 Regency
98s. the 3800 Series II is an awesome
engine coupled with smooth tranny. Even
with over 75K, weroutinely get 29-30
MPH at turnpike speeds. GM was nuts to
stop building these cruisers. Anyone
with a bad back would love driving one!

Best Features

Fuel economy, all the whistles and bells, interior comforts, mechanical reliability, great occupant protection in mishaps,205 horses can really move in a pinch.

Worst Features

This model was several years old in last year produced, so glitches were taken care of by '96. Styling, not features killed these beauties.
